Wow! Anybody know how long it is?

Looks like they did a very nice job, not surprising in view of the modification facility. Heck, it probably has a supplemental type certificate. . .

thought of this thread when I saw this Airstream on Craigslist:
1996 36ft Airstream Integrity Fifthwheel

1996 36ft Airstream Integrity Fifthwheel - $6800 (Seffner)

Date: 2011-02-23, 1:35PM EST
Reply to: see below



Must see, two electic slideout rooms, two central air conditioners, two central heaters, large private bathroom with garden tub and washer/dryer hook ups, queen size island bed, large deep closets, tons of storage with outside basement, fully self contained with gas/electric fridge that works great as well as every thing else in trailer. First one with $6,800 or closest to it steals it. Call my cell

My wife and I have been RV'ng since we got married 36 years ago. Over this time we have had tents, 5 pop ups, motor home, fifth wheel, and now we have a Airstream Classic 31. We've found that there is no perfect solution. When the kids were small the popups were great and we never imagined going to a MH or TT. Then we started traveling greater distances on trips which required longer days on the road and more stops to get to our destination. We traded to a MH and loved that means of travel, but it was very expensive. We sold the MH and went to a fiver. We really liked the fiver but needed to upgrade to a trailer that was 4 season so we could safely camp in Yellowstone in the early spring and late fall. After looking a lot, we decided on the Airstream. It only requires 9 1/2 feet of clearance which allows us to go places the fiver couldn't. It's amazing what difference 2-3 feet makes. While we don't have the storage we had in the fiver, the level floor of a AS is great. No longer have to constantly go up and down stairs which helps on the knees. The AS is also more stable when set up. We don't get nearly as much rocking motion. We found that we have much more space in our truck bed to carry other stuff we couldn't previously load. We also found that AS does a great job of providing space for putting things. We ended up with a lot more storage capacity than we thought we would have.

I understand that it is sitting on a ranch somewhere in the San Antonio area. It was at the AS dealer in Buda a couple of years ago for some repairs. See my thread elsewhere on this site with photos I took at that time.

It is a real beast!

8 batteries? and solar panels?. buy a 1000 watt generator and charge the batteries every day. I bet that is enviriomentally a lot better than the total effect of the alternative you are considering. and a thousands of dollars cheaper' and a lot lighter.
Problem solved, now pick out the airstream you like and go camping.
5th wheels are so "last year" right now.

Just an FYI, and not that it really matters, but I'm pretty sure that is an Argosy fifth wheel that has been repainted into Airstream colors. A walk around it at the last rally it and me (me and it?) attended showed several "Argosy" badges that had been painted over.

I love my 89 argosy 5th wheel. It was surprising to me that I get the same fuel economy towing my "whale" as I did towing my 27' argosy trailer. Same F-250D truck. At the time AS introduced the fifth wheel to compete, they also introduced the motorcoach. Most dedicated AS fans towed with a suburban or station wagon etc. The fifth wheel caused you to buy a truck as well, so the motorcoach sold well for those making the jump, and the fifth wheel had a difficult time in the market.
